03/20/2022 - All-In Membership - Hartford, CT Ben is a strong LH 1B in the 2023 class. At the plate, he is very impressive. His 6’2/207 frame produces hard consistent contact to the biggest parts of the field. He begins in a athletic open stance and his stride is square and on time. His hand separation is smooth and maintains centered balance for pitch recognition. Hits with a firm front side and stays inside the baseball well. Hands are fast (84 exit velo) and his barrel is on plane with the baseball. In the field, he has active feet and centers his body to the baseball. Fields in an athletic set-up and has pocket feel. Throws have carry (82 raw velo) from a ¾ arm slot. Working to slow his body down and read hops will help his footwork and position his body to play lower to the ground. Overall, Ben has big time potential and projects to be a middle of the order college bat in the very near future.
